Vehicle2012 Honda CR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
ReviewTest drove the new CRV this afternoon and bought one for my wife.
Replacing her 2003 CRV after 9 exceptionally reliable years.
Road noise reasonable (better than earlier models).
Nice cabin layout, excellent trunk room (floor lowered), comfortable seats, decent quality leather seating, and reasonable pep.
Folding table between front seats is gone (good).
Didn't test the Eco mode, but apparently increases highway mpg 7%.
Acceleration remains reasonable, but not stellar.
Rear leg room appears slightly larger, and rear seats fold down more easily than on previous models.
Rear pull out shelf standard.
Rear seats more comfortable.
Feels more spacious.
Great car for the next 9 years!
Best FeaturesComfort (surprised me - better than earlier models). Heated seats. Space. Ipod. Ride.
Worst FeaturesAlways, 6 cylinder engine as an option, or some form of turbo to provide better acceleration. Otherwise, nothing.
